Gifted and Talented Minor and Endorsement
The Gifted & Talented Education minor prepares individuals for a State of Idaho endorsement with either an Elementary or Secondary Certification. This endorsement enables a teacher to work with gifted and talented students in grades K-12. It also allows a teacher to work as a G/T Facilitator or a G/T Director/Coordinator. Students interested in this endorsement must integrate the Gifted and Talented Education courses into their Elementary or Secondary Teacher Education program. Teacher candidates must also complete certification in either Elementary Education or Secondary Education. Courses should be taken in the order listed on the Gifted/Talented Education Minor Program Plan. Currently, there is no Praxis II exam required for the Gifted/Talented Education endorsement.
